Day of Practice

From Struggle to Ease:
When Meditation Feels Challenging

7-10am PT / 10am-1pm ET / 3-6pm BST / 4-7pm CEST

When we can acknowledge our practice difficulties, we can liberate our understanding of practice itself.

Sometimes meditating feels like a struggle. The restless, tired or aching body offers the heart-mind no space to settle into. We get exhausted with attempts to calm the thinking mind. The breath body is tight. We worry that we are not a “good meditator,” or that we are not meditating correctly.

This Day of Practice led by vipassana teacher, Ulla, will offer guidance for moments when your practice feels more challenging than gratifying. We’ll take a look into assumptions and expectations around meditation, and the difficulties all of us practitioners experience from time to time. And, we’ll learn creative tools and techniques for handling these energies.

This program will include Dharma teachings, guided meditations, small group sharing, and opportunity for Q&A with Ulla.

Program Takeaways:

  • Unburden yourself from the limiting belief that there is a correct way to meditate
  • Learn alternative practice options like meditation in movement, including sense doors, and the permission to “just be”
  • Develop a more individualized approach to practice, relying on your first-hand experience as a compass

What is Day of Practice?

Sangha Live’s 3-hour, LIVE Day of Practice allows for you to drop in deeper, develop your meditation skills, and reset your intentions through sustained sitting.

Days of Practice includes longer periods of meditation, interspersed with wise teachings, an interactive Q&A with our teacher, and more.

Replay access will be available to all registrants within 48 hours of the live session.

How is Day of Practice different from Sangha Live’s Daily/Sunday classes?

Our shorter Daily Meditation (60 mins) and Sunday Sangha (90 mins) programs emphasize dharma teachings, while our longer Days of Practice (3 hours) emphasize development of meditation practice.

Daily practice is crucial for watering seeds of mindfulness, but extended periods of deep attention such as these, away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, can be uniquely fruitful.


Day of Practice is offered on a sliding scale basis, with a suggested rate of $35. We wholeheartedly welcome all to practice with us; no one turned away for lack of funds.
